That was plain enough in the original, but understand the desire to be plain squared.

Thanks Ashes. Cool stuff.

the article is not referring specifically to the Greek at Berkeley but rather to Greek style amphitheaters in general

I know, so what? Besides, we wouldn't want another " it has to be 100% Dead" cryfest on our hands would we?

casperovers: thanks for the back-up on this since I logged-off immediately after posting it. (I'm still partial to Albany, Augusta, Cape Cod, Warfield, Alaska, the Berkeley Greeks and anywhere else I saw Jerry....)

Thanks again for the assistance, --- AshesRising

"user unknown:"
The only problem with that leading quote from the article is that a similar definitive sentiment was expressed when individuals concluded that the star/planet "Earth" was "round" and not flat.
But now we have discovered that sentiment is no longer valid, haven't we? --- AshesRising

After reading the link-interesting little bit of information there-I actually pictured Thespis stepping out from the Chorus, not Bobby doing a ripppin' Greatest Story Ever Told. But I majored in Theatre.

BryanE:
Yeah, I understand why you need to qualify your response, however I certainly appreciate and value the lights of your mind. Thank You.
Under the watchful eye of Orion (aka: The Hunter), with its "Dog Star' (often confused in concert by the audience as "Dark Star" in "Lost Sailor"), I think it is appropriate to say "Goodbye" to Orion for now until his return in October ("Darkness shrugs and bids the day good-bye"): (naturally, I hope it doesn't make one feel too greasy)

"Three blue stars/Rise on the hill
Say no more, now/Just be still
All these trials/Soon to past
Look for something/Built to last

"One blue star/Sets on the hill
Call it back/You never will
One more star/Sinks in the past
Show me something/Built to last

"All the stars/Are gone but one
Morning breaks/Hear comes the sun
Cross the sky/Now sinking fast
Show me something/Built to last."
("Built to Last" @Robert Hunter, 1980-2007)

"That's not the sound of your regular number
I know that sound like I know my own name
Say, Mr. Matches, that a pretty nice tune
I wonder if you'd play that tune again?

"It went: Over the Hills and Far Away
a guitar player at the break of day
Playing Oh My Lady and Oh My Soul
Playing Whoa-oh and Over She Go
and I don't want to lose that feeling
I don't want to lose that feeling
I don't want that feeling to go - no

"That's not the sound of your regular drummer
One drive to the nail and four to the bar
I know that beat like I know my own heart..."
("Over the Hills" @Robert Hunter, 1973-2007)

"Say no more,now/Just be still...." ---- AshesRising
